Lawmakers propose 24-hour waiting period for tattoos and piercings
Washington, D.C. (WSYR-TV) – Lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are proposing a controversial bill that could spell bad news for the tattoo and piercing industry.
Local politicians are considering a bill that would mandate a 24-hour waiting period before a person could get a tattoo or piercing.
Supporters say this would prevent people from getting impulse tattoos that they could later regret.
Those against the bill say it would hurt business and believe that people should be able to tattoo and pierce their bodies whenever they want.
